    Sat on the balcony, feet dangling off the edge, eating strawberry laces and smoking. This is a new habit, but the odd cigarette helps me unwind. I've decided against being swayed by the cancer thing - I'm probably going to get it anyway, and it isn't the worst way to die.

    It's getting colder now, later in the year. I suspect this will be impossible by the end of October so I'm enjoying it while I can. The very few bedroom lights that remain on in the other halls, thin slits of golden light through implacably dark curtains, are flickering off one by one. Some of them must be like me, simply unable to sleep in unfamiliar surroundings - though I suspect more are coming to the end of their Fresher's Week in style.

    I have a lot on my mind, but its mostly silly things. Drama, love, intrigue and other inconsequential things. Or, they would be inconsequential if I could think on them properly. I don't sleep enough to summon up the concentration anymore. I'm fortunate enough to have tomorrow off, my course beginning on Tuesday. So hopefully that will give me time to straighten out my life, and sleeping patterns.

    In the meantime, I'm quite content on this balcony. This is a beautiful time of day.

    I don't know who you are, but you are my spirit animal. ...Or just me if I had a balcony and lived in London. Either way, I love you.

    Good though a little nervous. I've been in Gretna Green for the last few days with my bf and we have had a great time but now we have the drive home in an hour and its a 2 hour journey and I hate long car rides in case I take a panic attack but the journey back home usually feels like it goes in quicker then the journey down did.

    Feeling good today! A few friends and I went on a 12 mile walk around the South West Coast Path yesterday; there were plenty of laughs and the views were breathtaking. I might have spent last night wrapped in heat pads and hot water bottles, didn't have the best sleep in the world, and I may be walking like a plank due to aching so much, but after a lovely hot shower and all that jazz, I'm feeling great! Love living with my friends, uni starts again in 45 minutes, and just generally loving life with a lot to look forward to. Only slight annoyance is that physio is taking so long, but with my friends doing the yoga, swimming and walking with me, I'm still feeling really positive that I can strengthen those silly joints up again.

    Haven't managed to sleep two nights in a row and just spend most of the day's crying. I feel so miserable and alone
    I was told it was down to the full moons we've been having that is linked to insomnia..and sleeplessness. Probably no doubt worsened by our lunar eclipse supermoon thing last night might not of helped. Don't worry you're not alone there.

    I ended up managing to sleep at 6-ish, and slept until 5pm. I've only just gotten up, having spent a long time lying around before showering and getting dressed. My routine is ruined.

    I feel good, for once I feel happy and motivated with my life. During the holidays I had no contact with anyone, no motivation to do anything even small things like get out of bed. Now that I have a purpose and somewhere to go everyday I don't feel so adrift.
